The History of Rugs
According to history, rugs were first made by nomadic tribes, thousands of years ago. They wove rugs out of camel, sheep and goat hair. Many years later, in a quaint family fabric factory in South Africa, in 1987, Peter Hermann and his wife, Coba, built a fabric and wallpaper empire in South Africa. They created a stylish range called HAUS by Hertex in 2017, consisting of beautifully curated homeware, including sophisticated rugs, with simplistic and contemporary designs. These rugs brought the latest trends to the fore and made waves in the interior design industry. HAUS by Hertex rugs are lovingly woven and created in a variety of types, shapes and patterns.
